I'm posting this on behalf of a friend who teaches in the Media Studies
Program at Catholic University. She assures me that although this is
described as a limited-term position, it is "infinitely renewable."
Media Studies. Filmmaker/video production. The Program in Media Studies
at the Catholic University of America is an interdisciplinary
undergraduate major in the humanities and part of a liberal arts
curriculum. The Program invites applications for a two-year, renewable,
non-tenure track position at the level of assistant professor in media
production. Teaching responsibilities consist of five courses per year,
including a broad introduction to video production. Service in support
of the major is expected. Candidates should possess an MFA or the
equivalent, a proven record of excellence in teaching, and a portfolio
of work demonstrating expertise in media rhetoric and aesthetics. Focus
in documentary film and commitment to service learning are highly
desirable. Send cover letter, CV, letters of recommendation, evidence
of teaching, and samples of work (include return envelope for samples if
return is desired) to Stephen McKenna, Acting Director, Program in Media
Studies, 105 Marist Hall, Catholic University, Washington, DC 20064.
Review of applications will begin immediately and continue until the
position is filled.
The Catholic University of America is sponsored by the Roman Catholic
bishops of the United States as a national university and center of
instruction and research. Its faculties are composed of scholars from
diverse backgrounds and religious traditions, but members and associates
of the faculties are expected to respect the mission of the university
and to be supportive of its aims and ideals.
